Andrea began at RDP in 2016 with a background teaching part-time in Ontario in Nursing, Pre-Health Science and Fitness and Health Promotion programs. Andrea completed her BKin (Honours) degree at Brock University and continued on to Ball State University for an M.S. degree. She is taking the long way around toward a Doctorate degree from Western University. Andrea’s specialties include exercise physiology, pediatric exercise physiology and fitness and health. In 2018, Andrea completed her CSEP Clinical Exercise Physiologist (CEP) with High-Performance specialization in addition to her Instructor-Examiner (IE) designation and is in the last phase of completing her CSEP CEP IE, which will permit the certification of students with this designation at RDP.
